Gentoox on umodded XBox via MechInstaller?

Post by tutmann » Wed Sep 03, 2003 8:33 am

Hello *,
I've got an umodded XBox and ran MechInstaller. So I now have an XBox capable of booting a rescue-Linux. I wonder if I could install Gentoox now? But booting the Stardust-CD won't work.
Do I have to flash my bios?
Or should I use the ernie&bert-trick?
However I want to keep my XBox unmodded and want to be able to play games from time to time.
Also it would be really cool, if I could watch DVD-Movies. (Is there any Linux-Gentoox-App, wich can play DVD-Movies?).

Any hints, how I should continue?

I used 007 and the Signed_Phoenix_Bios_Loader_V1.3 (from #xbins)

I installed the loader so it was booted by bert and ernie.

Now I boot straight to evox and from there load gentoox.

Does that help? let me know if you need more info.

There are some tutorials describing how to use Bios_Loader as savegame for 007/MA. These include opening the XBox getting the HD and booting the PC with XLinux.
Isn't there a way, that I can copy the savegame via ftp to my Rescue-Linuxed-Xbox?
But where should which files be located?
Where can I find further infos how to deploy Phoenix-Bios-Loader?
And is Evox really what I want?
I'm not interested in playing Game-Copies. I just want to run Linux, some original Games and DVD-Movies.

Which would be the easiest solution?
